I sometimes enter the Writers of the Future contest (although not recently), so I get their spam. Today they emailed to tell me all about their new website that has, like, writing tips or whatever on it, and in the body of the email they talked about L. Ron Hubbard. And this is what they had to say about him:
"L. Ron Hubbard made a name for himself during the Golden Age of Science Fiction becoming one of the most publishable names in pulp fiction, with a ninety percent placement rate of first-draft manuscripts."
Wait, what? Am I reading this right? He was sending out first-draft manuscripts? No wonder his reputation sucks so bad--that and Scientology.
Remember last year, when Anonymous turned their attention to Scientology? And then apparently lost interest and went back to making lolcats? Feeling wistful here for bygone glories.
